Horse Passports

All horses and ponies (and other forms of equidae) need to have a passport identifying the animal.  It is an offence for an owner to:

  • export a horse
  • use a horse for the purposes of competitions
  • move a horse to the premises of a new keeper
  • present for slaughter for human consumption
  • sell a horse
  • use a horse for breeding purposes
  • if the horse is not accompanied by a valid passport.

 

Horse owners who have not yet applied for a horse passport should do so immediately by contacting organisations that are authorised to issue horse passports in the UK, a list can be found on the DEFRA website.
